Tomboyish or girlie?

For this card I used one of the new digital images of The Teenagers range from Ladybug Crafts Ink. I was the lucky person to win a gift certificate to the shop at the time of the release and the first item I put into my cart was Tomboy Jess. I thought it was the perfect image for the daughter of a friend who turned 14 today.

My camera could not really capture the fresh green of the Core'dinations CS and the dress, but at least they're a bit more true to life in the detail photograph below.

The layout is based on the following sketch from the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog:

I rotated the background triangle to make the sketch work for me.

Materials used:
Papers and flower stickers - BasicGrey Marjolaine collection pack
Brads - BasicGrey
CS - Core'dinations
Image - Ladybug Crafts Ink (Tomboy Jess)
Colouring - Spectrum Noir pens
Ink - Stazon black
Border - Silhouette design, cut from white CS and coloured with SN
Sentiment stamp - Paula Pacual stamp set (All year round)
Oval die-cut - Crafts-Too
